Libertarian Gary Johnson Pans Debate

DENVER, (UPI) –  Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson said Wednesday’s debate between U.S. President Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney wasn’t really a debate.

The former New Mexico governor said in a statement Romney and Obama’s debate in Denver provided “two slightly differing versions of defending the Republican and Democrat status quo that has given us war after war after war, a $16 trillion debt, and a government that is the answer to everything.”

“Nowhere was there a real plan for reducing government, balancing the budget any time in the foreseeable future, or a path that will actually put Americans back to work,” Johnson said. “We heard two politicians arguing over which of their plans for government-run health care is less bad. We heard fantasies about balancing the budget while not reducing Medicare costs.”

Johnson said the two candidates were merely “nibbling around the edges of the nation’s problems.”

“We don’t have time to nibble — we need to devour them,” he said. “Americans deserve real debates and a voice who will actually tell the truth about what it will take to put this great nation back on track.”

    SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE – WHO CARES?; A Constitutional Amendment – WHICH GUARANTEES THIRD-PARTY CANDIDATES ACCESS TO DEBATES AND PLACES THEM “ON EQUAL FOOTING” WITH THE MAJOR PARTIES.

    IF ALL AMERICANS ARE IMPORTANT, AS INDIVIDUALS, AND HAVE GUARANTEED RIGHTS, THOSE INDIVIDUAL AMERICANS WHO SUPPORT THIRD-PARTY CANDIDATES DEMAND PUBLIC ADDRESSES FOR THOSE WHO REPRESENT THEM.

      I think we’d be better served, making it illegal for governments to support political parties and candidates, and abolishing the rules that the democrats and republicans get to follow, and make all parties follow the rules in place, that all of the other parties have to follow.

    I am inclined to agree with Gary Johnson. Finally, someone with some common sense. Kudos to Gary Johnson.

    Face it. We have two types of socialist parties. One Marxist and one fascist. There is no real choice.

    Johnson tells truth and shames the devil! The elephants and donkeys deserve the bird! Obama and Romney have forsaken the American Dream.

    A declaration is an affirmation. Independence means self-government. They could have called The Declaration of Independence, The Affirmation of Self-Government!

    Gary Johnson and Judge Jim Gray are the only choice to Save the American Dream: Self-Government, freedom from big government tyranny and oppression…. and to Restore Justice, the guardian of Liberty! The people believe in self-government and self-medication.
